Ghostface Killah & Westside Gunn Give Golden Age Raps To DJ Muggs

Life is too short to listen to bad music. So…let Ambrosia For Heads sift through it for you and only supply you with that great stuff. Despite the reports, Hip-Hop is alive and well and, in many ways, it’s better than it’s ever been. Not only can we go back and listen to all of our favorites at the click of a button, but there is also a ton of great music still being made by artists, young and veteran alike…if you know where to look. To help with that task, we’ve created a playlist with recently released music. We update it regularly, so subscribe to follow us on Spotify if you like what you hear.

Today (August 25), DJ Muggs released Soul Assassins 3: Death Valley. The Cypress Hill co-founder and hit-making producer for Ice Cube, House Of Pain, and others revisits a SA trilogy that dates back to 1997. Muggs maintains the star power of the series, with appearances by Cube, Scarface, Freddie Gibbs, B-Real, Method Man, Slick Rick, CeeLo Green, Evidence, Devin The Dude, and more.

Following 2022’s Meth and Rick The Ruler collabo “Metropolis” (which is also included on the LP), there is another bridge between Wu-Tang and other generations of MCs. “Sicilian Gold” pairs Ghostface Killah and Westside Gunn, through the production lens of Muggs. Last year, Gunn and Ghost’ teamed (alongside Busta Rhymes, Raekwon, and Stovegod Cooks) for “Science Class.”

“Sicilian Gold” begins with GFK spitting to Muggs’ hazy Funk. He calls himself the L. Ron Hubbard of Rap, with his lyrical Scientology before bragging about his crusty jewels. “Iron Man” details his lush life, bountiful closets, and exotic tastes. Gunn follows on the theme, showing just how much Supreme Clientele influenced his Supreme Blientele movement of the last five-plus years. While the record is less than two minutes long, it packs a lasting punch.

Muggs also collaborated with video director Jason Goldwatch for a Soul Assassins 3: Death Valley cinematic movie, which was filmed on location in Death Valley and will be released on September 13. A trailer is currently available. Other songs from Soul Assassins 3 are on the playlist, including the dope-inspired, piano-driven “67 Keys,” featuring Roc Marciano, Rome Streetz, and Meyhem Lauren, and the introspective “Burn The Playbook” featuring Evidence and Domo Genesis.

The AFH playlist also features new music from DJ Muggs & Meyhem Lauren, a Statik Selektah and Wu-Tang Clan collaboration, as well as recent songs by Conway The Machine and Benny The Butcher. Earlier this year, Muggs partnered with Meyhem Lauren and Madlib for Champagne For Breakfast.
